Police, an ambulance crew and National Highways East attended.

There were no reports of serious injuries at the time.

Both lanes were blocked as the tractor leaked fuel onto the road.

At 1.02pm, National Highways said the A14 had reopened eastbound between junction 38 at Newmarket and junction 40 at Higham.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesperson said the drivers of the tractor and car were transported to West Suffolk Hospital for further assessment and treatment.
